In the Name of Honor

4.2/5 rating (5 votes)


A Prisoner of Honor!

Pleading desperate need to settle a matter of his family's honor, Civil War hero Guy Bruce wins special dispensation from President Abraham Lincoln for a 90-day furlough to England. Just as a final resolution of the affair is in his grasp, Bruce finds himself framed for a crime, humiliated and disgraced before the woman of his dreams, and deported as a common criminal to a brutal Australian penal colony.

Now he must fight his way back—to regain his personal honor—to honor his commitment to President Lincoln—and to once more win the heart of the woman he loves.

Best known for his heart-warming stories of dogs, Albert Payson Terhune began his career as an author of historical adventure novels.

First I knew Terhune wrote anything but the many books of dog stories! Thanks, I'll be ordering this one today.


Terhune wrote many historical adventure stories early in his career. Hope you enjoy this one.
